KindaCool probably thinks battered sausage is a specialist porn category.
I've posted a LOT about something I haven't eaten in several years. Anxiety? Boredom? A Lack Of Attention? You decide.
It does EVER SO remind me of when someone informed me their drug dealer was called BLACK JIMMY, eliciting a NATURAL reaction of STUNNED HORROR as a card-carrying member of the chattering classes
Naturally I saved him in my contacts as JIMMY NOIR to MAKE IT CLASSIER
Absolute rubbish! Where does one even begin?
And anyway the reason prosecco and champagne would go well with chippy fish is the fizz cuts through the deep fried batter.
I’m partial to all!
None of the aforementioned. I’ve talked to the tarot and you have a secret, terrible urge for a 49p pizza fried in batter and double chips. And a wally
Oh it’s like an Alpine white with FONDUE. I’ve seen videos and the wine actually GENTLY CHOPS the fondue in your stomach in preparation for the deposit
I'm glad I waited for I was in London this year to have my first fish and chips ever. It was filthy and greasy and i was so drunk. I loved every part of it.
Ooooh DO ME MUM
I’ve only recently come to the realisation that I’m not a massive fan of chips either. I eat them, but never a whole portion and end up picking at them reluctantly halfway through. Anything that comes from the sea is foul and you might as well ask me lick a toilet bowl. Actually I’d prefer it.
I do however love anything pickled.
@octophone is a mock chop a Scottish thing? What is it?
I can't get a saveloy here in Yorkshire for LOVE NOR MONEY. But you do get scraps (Which the last time I asked for down south, you'd have thought I'd asked for stillborn babies the look I got)
Oh I love nothing more than a big fat poke of chips from the chippy. Loads of brown sauce too.
What are scraps?
I think they’re the leftover bits of batter
Do you pay for such delicacies?
I don’t think I could walk in to a fish and chip shop and ask if they have any spare scraps. I take it you ask for them whilst buying something else?
I must also add that I usually have a chippy accompanied with a large glass of wine (like I have most evening meals). It just doesn’t feel right WITHOUT it.
I’m obviously very sensitive and reserved and I’m not sure whether I could bring myself to honk SCRAPS WITH THAT PLEASE LUV in front of other people but I suppose I could hand them a note
I love a good fish and chips, but they almost always put too much batter on the fish, which means that it isn't crispy enough.
I like to replace batter and breadcrumbs for bashed up cornflakes.
Awful. Far too greasy.
There was a chip shop here that had a vegan menu which was FUN but it’s closed down now.
Scraps are alive and well in the West Country, my lover, or at least further into it. But we tend to call them SCRUMPS. And naturally eat them with a PINT OF SCRUMPY
I get battered halloumi with chilli jam and sweet potato wedges from the local chippy. Long live gentrification.
Well EXCUSE ME for not swallowing alcohol with every bite of food to the point where it becomes part of the meal! Sorry but the food I'm used to NEVER needs an 'enhancement'.
Don't feel obliged to apologise for your basic palate.
You wouldn't get them for no reason or without anything else. But if you're just having chips, then "can i have some scraps on that" is a nice free topping.
Yes, some of us actually use the WINE as a SOUP, the FOOD as MERE CROUTONS ON TOP
What are you even drinking with your food? If it's anything other than distilled water, then it's likely changing the taste of the food and most soft drinks will have a much more radical effect than most alcohol.
Ooh YES PLEASE. Filth. I often go for scampi and of course GALLONS of vinegar but no salt.
There is a chippie near me that does PICKLED ONION RINGS and I STILL haven’t been yet. SOON
And unless that distilled water is CRISP you can forget about it!
Personally I like the wine served as a DIP, which is especially super with a gravy dinner. All my friends do it too and they all say that it doesn’t half ENHANCE the flavour
Some of us have taken to SWILLING IT WITH ARSEHOLES to TEST THE CRISPNESS of the TERROIR
But it IS just water. I find that ANY drink just distorts the taste of my meal, which if cooked right should do the job on its own just fine.
I do love wine of course, but by itself as a social thing.
I am proud to say that I've been to London (I LOVE LONDON) and have eaten them and LOVED them but I probably had shit ones that are sold to tourists for an unreasonable price.
THE FOOD OF GODS.
I love a chippy tea on a Friday. Its life.
The thing I miss most about LEEDS is yorkshire fishcakes. Two scallops with fish in between, deep fried. Lovely on a BARM with some peas and ketchup.
